These programs are designed to comfortably launch a camper into new experiences. Campers have the opportunity to try out some traditional BBC activities, as well as some unique to the Launch program. Campers can receive swim lessons if they would like them. In addition to kind and caring counselors trained in conflict resolution and homesickness campers are introduced to basic outdoor living skills.  Of course there are traditional BBC activities like Gaga, Slip N Slide, Scavenger Hunts, Arts & Crafts, Pig Trough, Camp Shepherds and Swimming in the Pond!
